Bing cherry, wild herbs and brambles hit you right off the bat. On the palate, thereís lots of bright red fruits like cherry, rhubarb and cranberry coming through, complemented with baking spices & a hint of smokiness. In spite of it spending a good amount of time in a mix of new and old oak (12 months), the tannins are modest, making this a friendly wine for drinking in 2013. Acidity is high, making it a bright wine thatís easy to pair with food.
The wine spends 12 months in a blend of new & old oak, then another 24 months resting before itís released.
Enjoy with grilled meats, pasta dishes with pork or beef ragu or an antipasti board of salumi & hard cheeses
